A great and fun trip. Michael, the driver/guide was informative and entertaining. Don't miss it.
Such a great day and tour!
This is a good way of seeing the west of Ireland if you have a limited amount of time in Dublin. Fantastic views near Kilkenny, and especially, of the Dingle Peninsula and Inch Beach. The only negative was the relatively small bus, which became somewhat uncomfortable at the end of 14 hours. Overall, a good value for the cost of the trip.
This was a fantastic trip. While much of the west and north of Ireland is rocky and windswept, County Kerry is a beautiful, lush place with wonderful forests, charming towns, and stately manors. This is where you'd want to live if you moved to Ireland.
Our first main stop was at Killarney National Park before that we stopped at a rest stop for breakfast, where I had a delicious scone and a pot of tea, where we saw a waterfall and got to explore the forest paths a bit. Then we went to this old manor by a beautiful lake with many gardens and lawns to stroll through. Next was the city of Killarney itself, which was extremely charming, and had many restaurants for lunch, shops for souvenirs, and ice cream places for dessert.
After that, we stopped at a very old church, a spot with a great view, and a large beach. It was extremely bizarre to see the Irish in wetsuits on a rainy 50 degree Fahrenheit day surfing, which was fun.
Overall, fantastic trip, and the drive in the bus itself was beautiful with great commentary. I'm glad I booked it!
Meeting place was on one street but bus was actually located a block over. Dublin downtown streets are so torn up by construction there are no street signs and getting around driving is a real challenge. We took a taxi about 3/4 mile and was over ten euros just to get there.
This tour was a mixed bag--it and #39;s a very long day, with several nice stops. We got pretty soaked and clouds obscured the best views, but that and #39;s to be expected in Ireland. Unfortunately, our driver/guide got more and more annoying as the day went on and this really colored our experience.
Overall, the experience was ok. It rained most of the time, which, is to be expected this time in Ireland, but overall, it was just ok. The guides weren't knowledgable and didn't make the trip worth while-- they were actually pretty boring. You spent a long time on the bus, and makes for a really long day.
